Occupational Health and Safety: How to protect workers from potential risks?
What did society learn from the catastrophy which asbestos brought to so many workers. families and the industry? Dr. Feitshans discusses the lessons learned from asbestos. But will they prevent a similar tragedy from nanotechnology? What does a comparison between the asbestos case and the new nanomaterials reveal?
Will the industry in the future delay disclosure of dangers like they did in the past with asbestos? Or will there be prompt disclosure of risks and hazards? What role does risk management and the precautionary principles play in safeguarding safety and health?

Do we need more laws and regulations to avoid hazard through nanotechnology?
Sciensts and governments agree that the application of nanotechnology to commerce poses important risks to human health and environment. The science of protecting public health lags behind the science of research that creates new nanomaterials. What law could protect the general public, nanotechnology workers and their corporate social partners from both liability and preventable harms?
Dr. Feitshans discusses the issues which occur within the process of creatiing a regulatory framework to protect life and public health. How can we define nanotechnology to be able to write laws? Or will it be sufficient to modify established regulations?

Will nanomedicine redefine old concepts such as disability and health? Which bioethical issues will come up as a consequence?
Nanotechnology will treat diseases sooner, possibly even while the people who are expected to become ill are still healthy. The presymptomatic recognition of illness will therefore expand the definition of disability.
Furthermore there is extensive overlap between nanotechnologies and genetic sciences. For example, the ability to choose fetal characteristics will revive many bioethical issues. The author discusses the key role of nanotechnology in enabling personalized, targeted and regenerative medicine.

About the Filmmaker Bernd Kulow
Our films work. Because we film with a passion.
Our films – whether documentary or commercial – are authentic, concrete, and convincing.
Trust is built on this basis. After all, a company today primarily needs the trust of its customers.
Our focus We specialize in image films for craft businesses and regional companies. We are also involved in the real estate sector. We create videos as well as 3D scans. With this new technology, we create a virtual space.
Bernd Kulow / Mango Film Bernd Kulow, the freelance filmmaker, has worked as a journalist for many years: Hessian television, ARD radio station, dpa, magazine and Die Zeit.
He was also involved in public relations and marketing. In addition, he headed the communications department of a large company as well as the press work of the German Road Safety Council.
After living in the USA, Tanzania and Peru as well as in Berlin, Cologne, Bonn and Frankfurt, he feels particularly at home in Freiburg.
Price-performance Depending on the type of film project, he works with appropriately specialized freelancers. Together we are fascinated by the latest film technology. This enables us to achieve a cinematic quality that until recently was reserved for large film productions.
With us, you will find a price-performance ratio that will appeal to you. In any case, we will be happy to advise you, free of charge, of course.
Marketing In the beginning, we create a concept. It is about the questions: What content-related statements should the film have? Which goals should be achieved? Which target groups are in focus?
If you wish, we would also be happy to advise you on how a film would most effectively fit into your marketing. In the end, the film should please your customers and appeal to potential customers. This succeeds if your offer is clear and precise.
